Anyway, we still have some more things to do (ceiling light fixture, finish painting the trim, cover up the washer and dryer that currently share this space, update the sockets and switches so they aren't beige with all of our white...) but a month and several weeks of Rick
Rick built that vanity with his own blood, sweat, and tears. He's my hero. And we also "built" the two lights for $4 total out of applesauce jars.
The mirror is the product of spray paint and a ridiculously cheap yard sale: it was $25 for that mirror AND another one just like it. It took me approximately 0.00009 seconds to fork over my cash, because most other mirrors I've seen for that price are plastic and made for dorm rooms. Here's what it looked like when I stumbled upon it in its dusty gold $12.50 glory:
Our little bathroom is all grown up and birdless. Looking at these pictures reminds me that I still need to remove that extra toilet paper roll holder from the back of the toilet, but I'll get to it eventually. Imperfections, embraced. :)
Like I said, I'll be sharing more specifics about the vanity and our DIY lights in posts next week. For now, I must go brainstorm a new 4th of July outfit since I've nixed the tape idea.
Enjoy this holiday weekend! :)
